Please understand that there are plenty of infections that Kaspersky (or any antivirus tool) will not catch and good websites do get infected.

I also repair computers and when I get a machine with half a dozen suspicious toolbars plus installed malware such as rogue registry cleaners and driver updaters invariably the UAC is set to standard. The average joe sees the UAC as an irritation and clicks through to make it go away. In fact they don't even know what it is.

And when I see a computer/user like that, I try my best to convince them to run as a standard user with the UAC turned all the way up. :-)

I explain to them that they should not be seeing that UAC pop-up while simply visiting a website. Hopefully, the extra time that it takes to put in the admin user's password will be enough for my warnings to them to come back to mind.

I return the UAC to its default settings when I find out that despite those defenses tools I should do that yet.

Although it's very wonderful for me that why Microsoft can offer that insurance in the UAC but can not offer in Windows defender or other Microsoft built-in tools, but I try the default settings of UAC. Thanks guys.
More brief and meaningful info is appreciated.
